New patch performance issues

Discussion in 'DiRT Rally' started by Peter Kerényi, Oct 1, 2015.

  1. Anybody got it? I ran high preset before the patch. Now high preset is kinda slow, ultra is a slideshow (while it used to be around 45fps on feeling). Now I'm running medium, and there is still some microstutter every few seconds. Tried it with AMD 15.8 and 15.9.1 drivers, not driver related.

    Specs: i5 4460, R9 270X, 8GB RAM

    All the gear, no idea...

    Yeah I noticed the game ran poorly compared to the last time I tried it

    Same issue I have, I still run it on ultra though, as my issues are "only" stuttering, which doesn't really go away whatever setting I choose.

    CPU: I7-5820K, 6-core 3,3ghz. Corsair H55 Watercooled.
    GPU: ASUS GTX 980 Strix SLi OverClocked.
    RAM: Crucial DDR4 2133 MHz 16GB
  4. I don't seem to have any problems at all. I run it all on High.

    Mine also seems to run just as well as before the upgrade, Dirt Rally is really improving with every update! (i7, 16GB, GTX980 - 3440x1440)

  7. Stuttering every 2-5 seconds, like micro pauses, not fps related. Game is unpayable at the moment.

  8. Yep it used to be super smooth, now it's bad and choppy...well early access alpha issues, can't really blame them, hopefully will be fixed asap :)

    There must be a common denominator, for some Dirt Rally runs great others say choppy. nVidia vs AMD, CPU, PC process interference, or game settings....
    I didn't change anything after the latest patch, still runs very smooth without any drops under 60 FPS.

    Ran 5 stages (quit 4 others) last night smoothly. On two occasions, there was a slowdown for 1/2 a second, followed immediately by a sped up 1/2 second as if to catch up. Didn't affect my results fortunately. AMD.
  11. Everything maxed out, advanced blending check it is OFF.

    i5 3570k
    16GB DDR3
    MSI 980
    1920x1080 single screen

    100+ FPS even in rain.
  12. Mine was perfectly fine before this update, FPS were at 50-60. Now almost unplayable micro stutters every 5 secs or so for about 1 sec not made any changes and FPS still the same.
    Can someone help with this please? Also has anyone got a good setup for Nvidia Inspector, (GTX 660 card).
    The worst is Finland with the new cars but does it with all cars all tracks.

    I experienced pretty much the same thing with my i5 + GTX660. Before the update it was smooth as, after the update lots of microstutters. I've largely alleviated them by switching off antialiasing in-game, and just using FXAA in Nvidia inspector. I also force on triple buffering and max prerendered frames = 1.
  14. Tried those settings not really made much difference, made graphics a bit weak if anything.

    Sorry it didn't help. Personally I can handle a bit of aliasing a bit more than I can handle stuttering, so this is the tradeoff I'm prepared to make!

    Microstutters on my system always indicate that the gfx card is being made to work too hard for some reason. So turning down antialiasing, and/or lowering texture settings usually sorts things out. As an absolute last resort I will lower the resolution, but only if all else fails.
  16. Needs to be some sort of fix in an update. Already running it on High settings but turning down a few to medium or off as they can cause FPS drop. The GTX660 should be more than capable running this game on these settings.
    Any chance you could post your Nvidia Inspector settings please.
    AMD Quad core 3.2ghz and 8gb RAM (if this helps).
  17. GTX660 here as well, i'm also having random stutters with High settings, it's like butter smooth 60fps, then suddenly drop to 15 or so...
    Running on Ultra is way more stable for some reason, not 60FPS, but at least it's very smooth
  18. Interesting! shall try that. Funny but Geforce experience says Ultra settings to optimise game, but it does hit FPS.
  19. @Otto Wilson. Tried Ultra in Finland with the Focus as these were giving me the worst stutters. FPS went down to 40. lowered a few settings and it averaged out around 45 FPS. Stuttering slightly improved which made it more playable. Still not as smooth as before this update.
